They call it sibling love!


Been fighting again!
This time, she would complain.
To Nana.
Pocket-money? Goodbye!
He would still buy her a grilled corn.
She would have to squirrel away hers. Treat him with a kite later.

Linking with Trifextra : Week Thirty - This weekend we want you to write a 33-word responseusing the name of an animal as a verb.
This challenge was a great learning for me and my family. I enjoyed familiarizing myself with the seemingly new usage. I am posting primarily for the fun of putting this learning to use. I hope you all enjoy reading this short scene too. I tried to create a brother-sister relation here. Fingers totally crossed!

  2. Great take on the prompt and you managed a whole story, and then some, in 33 words.

  3. my late grandmother, whom i called Gram, never used the word save when talking about money. It was always "you gotta squirrel away ten percent out of every paycheck".

    good work

  7. Nice use of squirrel. My brother could squirrel things away. I was always too impulsive.

  10. Nice job! You managed a very realistic sister's voice, I think. I love the word squirrel as a verb - I hadn't thought of that one.

  11. this had me chuckling. it reminded me of me and my brothers so many times. even today; you'd think being young adults we would've "grown up", but its sibling love at its finest lol
    and a squirrel was the perfect animal for this short tale.
